I see where your coming from, however, it's much better to see them involved in something like this that provides community relations.
I mean they could have spent the money otherwise. I would rather them shower people with gifts as opposed to let's say, pepper spray, tazers, ect...
So if they want to build relationships within the community, and they believed this was a good step, then let it be.

It's a nice idea....
But the holidays are stressful already, I'd be very upset to be pulled over for not doing anything illegal. Sure, something for free is nice -- but I may have to be someplace/somewhere.
I'm not really sure how I feel about this.
I don't care if you are a model police officer. Your not a good cop until you have arrested a bad cop. The good cops are outnumbered, so you should have at least a couple under your belt by now. If not, you are not a "good enough cop"I don't know you. If you pulled me over, i should not have to assume you are a good cop. You do realise thats where we are now? Right?

You are right.
I keep forgetting that we are less than human (pigs) and it is okay to judge each of us who are individuals, by the actions of others.
Even if those "bad apples" are a thousand miles away, working in another state that we have no jurisdiction in, we are still responsible for their actions.
You're a mean one Mr. Grinch.
